Aerial Mellow Flow is Om Factory’s answer to a Restorative Aerial Yoga Practice. Created by Kevin Bigger in collaboration with Maisah Hargett and their students, this method uses the aerial hammock as a tool to create sacred space in the body, mind and spirit. A slow-moving Aerial Yoga flow gently warms the body in preparation for a series of long holds in poses inspired by Yin and Restorative Yoga. Practical applications of pranayama and meditation techniques are often woven into the sequence as well. This exploration makes use of the aerial hammock much closer to the ground than in a general Aerial Yoga class.
Training will include:
• Sample classes taught by Kevin & Maisah.
• 30+ Mellow Poses detailed in a 150-page, full-color manual.
• Discussion of multiple class-sequencing strategies.
• Certificate from OFSY upon completion of 100% of training hours.
While it would be helpful to have experience either teaching or taking Aerial Yoga classes prior to enrolling in this training, it is designed to be open to any teacher who is interested in adding a new skill set to their toolbox. Interested students who want to treat themselves to three days of lounging in the hammocks are also welcome to join.
Kevin Bigger completed his RYT-200 training with Boston's Radiant Yoga School. In New York City, he was later whipped into proper shape by Schuyler Grant and all the rad teachers at Kula Yoga Project and currently studies with Iyengar Yoga Teacher Nikki Costello (including the Enrichment Practice, a 300-Hour Advanced Teacher Training). Kevin was first introduced to the idea of Aerial Yoga in New York in 2009 and has been teaching in a hammock for the past seven years. At Om Factory, he co-created OFSY's Aerial Yoga Teacher Training curriculum and is one of the lead teachers for the 200-Hour Vinyasa Teacher Training as well. He has led over a dozen Aerial Yoga Teacher Trainings for Om Factory in New York, Connecticut, Oregon, China, South Korea, Taiwan, Japan and Vietnam.
Maisah Hargett happened upon yoga whilst looking for a way to keep her body in prime performing condition as a dancer. After many a class that wasn’t quite the right fit she found her gateway drug in Vinyasa; the linking of breath and flowing movement really hit home with her dancing heart. She went on to complete her 200hr training with Yoga to the People NYC (2011) and followed that up with trainings in Restorative Yoga (Mary Aranas 2013), Kids’s Yoga (Asana Alphabet 2014, RYCT), Aerial Yoga (OFSY 2014) AcroYoga (AcroYoga Montréal 2015), Baby Yoga (Asana Alphabet 2016), Trauma-Informed Yoga (Exhale to Inhale 2017) and last, but certainly not least, Aerial Yoga Mellow Flow (OFSY 2013).
